Kodak EasyShare Z950

 

The 12-megapixel Kodak EasyShare Z950 ($250 as of 12/7/09) is an easy-to-use pocket megazoom camera with an impressive list of advanced features. In addition to a 10X-optical-zoom lens, it has exposure bracketing, shutter priority, aperture priority,...

Quick shutter on individual shots ; 10X optical zoom ; Very good still-image quality

Mediocre video quality ; Shutter lag between shots ; No wide-angle capabilities

Simple to use, the EasyShare Z950 offers impressive color and a powerful 10X optical zoom. The only disappointment is its mediocre video quality.

EasyShare Z950

 

The EasyShare Z950 is a high-end point and shoot that captures 12 megapixel images and has a long 10x zoom. But we found that it had only lackluster performance, with slightly soft images and fuzzy video.

The Z950 is a decent camera, with decent performance and a decent set of features. And decent is not a bad thing: it takes good pictures and has a zoom long enough to get close to the action. But it doesn't really shine in any area, and some of the...

Kodak EasyShare Z950 Digital Camera Review

 

Review of the Kodak EasyShare Z950, a 12-megapixel digital camera with Schneider-Kreuznach lens.

Kodak EasyShare Z950 review – relatively narrow lens

 

The Kodak EasyShare Z950 is a straight forward digital camera. Its design is quite similar to that of the EasyShare Z915. It features 35mm equivalent lens with 10x zoom in a compact body. This lens is not a wide-angle one used by the other companies...

Average photo quality and mid-range features as per its price tag

Relatively narrow lens; a bit frustrating shooting performance

The Z950 is a standard mega-zoom camera with narrow lens. It gives simple semi-manual and manual control. The photo quality and performance is average as per its price tag.

The Kodak Z950 is a 12MP point and shoot camera with a 10x optical zoom. It has built-in optical image stabilization and features a large 3-inch LCD. What surprises me about the Z950 is the number of features and amount of control available in a camera...

The Z950 produces competent images that won’t rival more advanced point and shoot cameras (particularly the newer models with CMOS sensors) or DSLRs; however, the images should be more than competent for most users’ family albums, as well as low-res...

Review: Kodak EasyShare Z950 digital camera

 

Simple to use, the EasyShare Z950 digital camera offers impressive color and a powerful 10X optical zoom.

The Z950's bricky, all-black design won't win any awards, but you could consider it a bit retro; it reminded me of my first 35mm camera from childhood. Though the Z950 has a 3-inch LCD, it lacks an optical viewfinder

High-end aspirations but average performance, with slightly soft images and fuzzy video

Low image noise; Decent zoom and nice LCD

Soft edges on long zoom; Underwhelming video

The Z950 is a decent camera, with decent performance and a decent set of features. And decent is not a bad thing: it takes good pictures and has a zoom long enough to get close to the action. But it doesn’t really shine in any area, and some of the...

Kodak EasyShare Z950 Review

 

The Kodak EasyShare Z950 calls to mind early point and shoots Kodak put out when ease of use and bright, colorful images were just about all you wanted from a digital compact.

Good ergonomics ; Full manual control ; HD video

Flimsy battery cover ; Sluggish start up time ; Tends to overexpose

Noise begins to appear at ISO 200 and increases gradually through ISO 1600, though the image is still pretty good at ISO 400 and 800, with minimal softening from noise reduction and only a minor loss of color. Although the Z950 uses the same sized...

Kodak EasyShare Z950

 

This is a basic camera device that doesn't offer much to its user.

This point and shoot digital camera gives you control over many features

Only 150 images can be captured on a single battery charge with this camera

The Kodak Z950 is a point and shoot camera that gives its user a device that they can control. It is basic and lacks numerous features that would enhance its performance and overall photo quality. However, if you aren't expecting much and don't...
